COMPLETE COELACANTH IN NODULE - TRIASSIC, MADAGASCAR


Whiteia woodwardi Moy-Thomas 1935.

A complete Coelacanth in a nodule showing both the positive and negative halves of the fish. Nice detail of the skull and sculptured scales under magnification. Shows the typical array of fins and unusual finned tail. The nodule shows shrinkage cracks but these do not detract from an otherwise very fine example of this enigmatic fossil. These Triassic Coelacanths from Madagascar are getting more and more difficult to obtain. Collector's item.

Lower Triassic.
Ambilobe, Madagascar.

Fish : 11.4cm. long.
